I purchased this as a gift to be used with a whistle when walking. Love it! It arrived quickly and is just as the description.

The magnet arrived earlier than expected and was so very cute! Love the 8bit look! Wish it was a bit smaller to match Mario's size.

About

Handmade hair bows and accessories

8-Bit Bows started with a bored stay at home mom who wanted a hobby that both let her work with her hands and helped contribute to her family.

Inspired by my sweet daughter, I decided hair bows would be a good place to start. With much love and support from my family, we have grown into a wonderful
small business that is a joy to run.

We now have an assortment of products to choose from, and plan to keep expanding and creating more fun accessories for everyone.

*****************HEADBANDS:

*headbands/wraps may be custom sized, please provide accurate measurements for a good fit.

Measurement instructions:

Have the individual sit still on a chair with her chin up before measuring to obtain exact measurements. If the individual is an infant, lay the baby down on a flat, secure surface, such as a changing table.

Measure the circumference of the person's head using a vinyl measuring tape. Wrap the measuring tape in a "U" shape from the back of the individual's head near the nape of the neck to the front of the forehead and behind the ears. Note the measurement after the two sides of the measuring tape meet at the front of the forehead, 1 inch down from the hairline.

Subtract 1 inch from the measurement to ensure the head band fits securely around the individual's head. For example, if the head measurement is 15 inches, then create a head band that is 14 inches. For head bands made of stretchy elastic material, deduct 2 inches to ensure a snug fit, but also keep in mind personal preference!

for tighter fit, subtract more, (2 inches)
looser fit, less, (1inch)

**************************KEY CHAINS/ MAGNETS

if you can dream it, we can do it! Pretty much anything can be made into bead art!
They make great party favors too!

*names
*video game characters
*various animated characters
* classic 8 Bit designs

There are a large variety of fuse beads available, including glow in the dark, metallic, and other fun types, so the sky is the limit!

Just keep in mind that depending on the style and size of beads used, a specific design may only work for one type; general rule of thumb is;

* A magnet is about twice the size of a key chain, so, if you see a 4 inch wide magnet you'd like to have as a key chain, it'll be about a 2 inch key chain, and vice versa, a 3.5 inch wide key chain will be a 7 inch wide magnet, approximately.
